Hi All,

I have a BT land line for £25.50 each month (Option 1, normally £17) and AOL broadband unlimited for £20.50 (silver). (have been thinking about cheaper and more reliable provider for a while anyway.) Does anybody know any better deal as this is a lot to pay each month and want to reduce my outgoings?

Thanks for any suggestion, ;)

taj.

    If your paying £25.50p a month to BT your on option 3.

    Change to BT Together Option 1 for the landline rental (£11/month incl. VAT paid by Direct Debit) a.s.a.p.

    There are numerous ways to save on your calls - see the 'HERE' link in my signature below for a few suggestions.
    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.

    Thank you very much. Normally I pay £17 a month, but receantly BT increased the monthly payment 'cos I was not in credit. (I receive a bill every three months). Now I'm in nearly £50 credit so I ask them to reduce my monthly payment to £17. I use Telediscount for the international calls. :T That's a huge discount for me. Or do you know any better?

    I check you links, thanks again.

    Change from 'Monthly Payment Plan' to 'Monthly Whole Bill Direct Debit' payments.

    As you are not going to be making many (if any) calls via BT, you don't want to be paying them more than necessary - £11 per month for the line rental and a few pence for calls is more than enough!

    If you are paying £20.50 for AOL Silver, ring them up and tell them that you want it for £9.99, which is what lots of others are now paying!

    HTH
